Tag to make link in email a non-tracked link

We have a communication going out to our employees that links to an internal page which requires a login or SSO. The information appended by Marketo is breaking the link when users click. A long time ago we ran into the same problem, and I added a tag to the link formatting that kept the link as is instead of making it track-able and appending information. I realize that I won't be able to report on the engagement, but that's not a big deal for this situation - we just need to get the email out. I can't for the life of me remember what that tag was.

Does anyone know what that tag is? I've searched on the community, but searching for anything with "tracking" brings up a whole mess of results.

You can just use the checkboxes in the "Insert Link" dialog of the text editor.

Or, if you really want to add the code to the <a> tag yourself, it is class="mktNoTrack" (disable tracking completely) or class="mktNoTok" (disable mkt_tok query parameter from appearing on destination page URL).

Also, quick question for you Justin Cooperman - are the checkboxes you're referring to in the new text editor? If so, we're still using the old one until the anchor functionality is fixed. In your other post it says Dec '15 - still the case?

What is the anchor functionality you're referring to?

Adding IDs to anchor tags. It was in your post here, but it looks like it's gotten crossed off since the last time I checked. Question answered!
